Why I chose the Skoda Kushaq over the Kia Sonet & Tata Nexon

All in all there were a few trade offs when it comes to features while picking this over a Sonet, but no waiting period and the feel of sitting inside a Skoda is simply much more premium and solid than a Nexon or Sonet.

BHPian mojojaja recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Welcomed Skoda Kushaq Ambition Classic AT (2022 model) to my garage. It's my first car, been using it for just a day so I can't delve into much on the performance front but I am already very optimistic about my choice. The other cars I was looking at were Tata Nexon and Kia Sonet and I saw and TD those two before I saw Kushaq.

But the moment I sat inside the Kushaq, I knew it was going to be my final choice and after TD it, I simply wasted no time in booking it.

A few misses in this (that left me surprised given I had to shell out 16L+):

  • No engine start/stop button, back to the old key ignition days!
  • no automatic ac or air purifier (not a deal breaker for me)
  • not a major feature but at this price range, many other brands offer sunroof

I was however told that Ambition Classic will get some frills Ambition AT doesn't like exterior chrome enhancements which comes in Style AT and also all black suede seat covers.

All in all there were a few trade offs when it comes to feature while picking this over a Sonet, but no waiting period and (at the risk of offending others) the feel of sitting inside a Skoda is simply much more premium and solid (imo) than a Nexon or Sonet.

I just wished this had the same black diamond cut alloy wheels Style has, those simply look fabulous.
